Since Huawei is on the US entity list, there is no Google Play service installed on Huawei's latest smartphones, which makes it difficult for most overseas users to accept Huawei phones.
Recently XDA Developers forum member bender_007 developed an app called Googlefier that allows users to install Google apps on Huawei and Honor smartphones in a quick and easy way.
You can check it here:
It's a quick and easy way to install Google apps on Huawei and Honor smartphones, although users have been able to do it themselves before.
The principles of Googlefier are also all the same as some of the previous methods, except that all the processes are within the app itself, making it easier to use.
It should be noted, however, that Google has warned users not to install its apps on unlicensed devices. This may mean that certain apps may not work as expected and may have an impact on the phone's battery life, but it's not a bad idea for overseas users who prefer Huawei phones.
For Huawei, in order to make up for the lack of Google Services, it has developed a new application called AppSearch that can download applications for its own Android smartphones without the Google Play Store.
AppSearch enables Huawei to offer popular apps from US companies such as WhatsApp and Instagram.
But this is done in an unusual way, because the installation of some apps is done through an external app store or directly from the website, not through the Huawei store.
Users can download various Google applications through AppSearch, such as Chrome browser and Youtube.
Huawei cannot provide the downloaded content directly to users. Therefore, AppSearch provides a link to a website that contains an APK file. You can open the link to download the application installation file.
Therefore, AppSearch essentially collects application installation files from various sources.
